Sick Little Girl & Diamond D Ranch Field Trip

Hello, hello!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

Ours was.. well, it wasn’t wonderful but it wasn’t awful.  Mackenzie has been sick since last weekend – we took her to the pediatrician twice during the week but she wasn’t getting any better.  When we were there Thursday, her doctor told us that if she still had a fever Saturday morning to bring her in again, so we


Valentines, Bad Runs & Mizunos

Happy Belated Valentine’s Day!

We planned to stay home Friday night and make heart shaped pancakes with the kids, but ended up going out to dinner and Target. So romantic, right? We don’t usually do anything big for Valentine’s Day, so I was super excited when a delivery guy showed up at the house with this..

I’m really not a fan of fresh flowers – they die so quickly


Garlic & Honey

If you follow me on instagram or we’re facebook friends, you already know I was sick and pretty miserable for nearly two weeks.  I will freely admit that when I am sick, I’m a bit of a whiny baby.  Pain, I can do.  Feeling miserable?  Not so much.

I started feeling puny on Tuesday.  My husband was out of town for work so I was on full-time mommy duty, plus working full-time and we


Dear Sick Germs – Go Away!!

I’m kind of stuck and don’t know what to do.

I’ve been really good lately about sticking to my training, not bailing on runs because I just didn’t feel like it, and I’ve really been enjoying my long runs since I started running with friends.

But then, my kids decided to share their evil stomach bug with me.  I’ve been dealing with it since Wednesday morning and



For the last few days, Mackenzie has had a strange cough. She doesn’t sound congested and it isn’t in her chest, but she sounds like she is barking when she coughs. She spiked a fever last night and has had a rough time sleeping the last two nights, so I kept her home from school and made an appointment to see the pediatrician.

Usually when we’re home, she is into everything


Sick Days

Both kids are sick.

Do you know how exhausting it is taking care of two sick kids?  Especially when your husband has a crazy busy week at work and can’t take off?  And you have work stuff that HAS to get done?

Trust me, it’s exhausting.

I picked Braden up from school early last Thursday for an ENT appointment.  Dr. Wohl was a bit confused because their hearing test showed that he had


Another sick day with Darlin’

Mackenzie’s allergies are really giving her a fit. I feel so bad for her – she has a hard time sleeping at night because she’s so congested and she clearly doesn’t feel well. Last night was particularly rough on her and she woke up really cranky and just not happy, work is slow these days so I kept her home for some mama cuddles and so she could relax and try to get in


Sweet, Sick Girl

Mackenzie is a sick little thing. I feel just awful for her. She has had a stomach bug since Friday night and just can’t kick it. She seems to feel better, then is up half the night vomiting again. I hate not being able to do anything for her. I kept her home from school today for some mama loving and TLC – she was a little fussy and likes being outside, so we took a lot of walks


Ear Infection, Round 2

Last night was not fun, at all. I was sitting in bed snuggling with Mackenzie and she made a weird noise, the next thing I knew, she projectile vomited all over herself, me, the bed, and the floor. It’s amazing how much stuff can come out of such a little person. Adam got everything cleaned up while Mackenzie and I hopped in the shower. She scared me in there because he started shaking
